Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders
This will depend on the Blue ray player and other equipment. For a direct connection to the receiver, if your player has either type of digital audio output (coaxial or optical), get the appropriate cables. Then connect the chosen cable between the Blue ray player and the receiver. Connect the Blue ray player to the TV with an HDMI cable. See page 10 of the manual, available at http://pdfstream.manualsonline.com/6/69f43064-f593-49b8-8d4a-23174b496e65.pdf , to see the connections for the audio sources. (I'll assume your Blue ray player doesn't have component video out or you would use the component audio to the receiver.)
If your player doesn't have a digital audio output, check your TV audio output. You can get the same result by sending the videos via HDMI to the TV and using the TV audio out to the receiver. Set the audio source to TV and leave it there for both TV and Blue ray and DVD videos. (Sometimes there could be a slight delay in the audio compared with the video signal when you do this. I've never noticed it with my Blue ray player signal going to the TV and the TV digital audio out to the Denon receiver.)
If you can't send the audio out to the receiver from either your Blue ray player or TV, then you will need some sort of HDMI audio extractor. You can find models with Analog Audio Out, Digital Audio Out or both. ( https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-JTDAT5CH/dp/B00BIQER0E lists units with both types of audio output. One models requires a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter.)
I hope this helps.

I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:
I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...
Hope this helps...

Check the center channel speaker and the surround sound audio settings. If you do not have a center speaker, it needs to be set to off on the receiver.

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
Connect and Enjoy

It's the other way around.
Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.
you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA
And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables
I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.
